  • Impregilo to build 400-MW El Quimbo hydro project in Colombia

    Impregilo has won a contract to build the El Quimbo hydroelectric power project in Colombia, the Italy-based construction and civil engineering firm announced.

    The value of the order is approximately EUR 250 million (about US$340 million).

    Spanish utility Endesa, through its Colombian subsidiary Emgesa, will invest US837 million to develop the El Quimbo hydropower plant, Business News Americas reported previously.

    El Quimbo, located in the Department of Huila on the Magdalena River, will have an installed capacity of 400 MW, reports indicate. 

    The project will feature a 150 meter high, 635 meter long main dam and smaller secondary dam. Construction of the project is expected to take about four years, Impregilo said.

    Impregilo also is constructing state-run Isagen's 820-MW Sogamoso hydropower project in Colombia.
